11-year-old Chan Yi is looking after his lovely younger sister So Yi by himself ever since their mother left them to find her own future. Despite their desperate situation of being abandoned by family and neighbours, these kids try their best to carry on life. One day, a little puppy joins this small family as Chan Yi steals it from an old couple's kennel as a gift his sister's birthday. Especially clever, this dog, whose name is "Ma-eum", returns the love received from his new family with great loyalty and it seems as though their happiness would continue forever... only until a sudden accident brings them into collapse.
Cast & Credits
PS: To avoid crying, keep repeating...its only a movie..its only a movie.. its only a a movie x10
This is probably "the best film with dogs in it" ive seen..and its probably better than the film "Hachiko" even its a true story. (oops...but Hachiko's ending is one of a kind)
note: the above is just a bit exagerated by me
The dog alone should probably win best actor award :)
This movie is cute but heavy in scenarios and emotions and sometimes unpredictable because often suspenseful and touching that even a person with a metal heart will melt.
The three main players are Chan, his litle sister Soi & their dog Hearty. All three are absolutely fantastic in each of their roles. The bond between the three of them is shown so well in the first half of this film.
I don't want to spoil you but something really unexpected happens which is totally heartbreaking, I don't think I have recovered yet from THAT event. What follows is both tragic and uplifting.
I think if you aren't moved to tears by this film or at least get a lump in your throat then you must be dead inside like Chandler Bing hahaha
